ABLA volunteers needed at VLS Legal Clinic at Webb Middle School, 601 e. St. Johns Ave., Austin Texas

Volunteering at a clinic is a minimal time commitment since clinics are from 6pm to 8:30pm. Attorneys do not have to take on cases.  VLS and TRLA staff attorneys are on-site to answer questions, the staff is knowledgeable about procedures and ready to lend a helping hand to its volunteers.  Join us as we reach out to our Austin community.
